Bollywood directors Rohit Shetty and Farah Khan are all set to collaborate for the remake of Amitabh Bachchan’s iconic movie Satte Pe Satta. While the Simmba maker will be producing it, the Happy New Year director will be at the helm of things.
According to a news report in Pinkvilla, Hrithik Roshan has been locked to step into Big B’s shoes in the remake and the female lead has also been finalized.
“Farah and Rohit have also locked the main female lead opposite Hrithik. Both of them wanted Deepika Padukone in the movie because not only do they love her but she fits the role to a tee. When Deepika made her debut, everyone felt she had an uncanny resemblance to Hema ji in terms of her beauty as well. When Farah narrated the story to the actress, she loved it and instantly gave her nod,” the report stated.
Deepika will team up with Farah Khan for the third time and with Rohit Shetty for the second time. It will be the first time that she will be paired opposite Hrithik in a film. Both the actors have previously shared how they wish to do a film together but things never fall in place.
The story of Satte Pe Satta revolves around seven brothers, and now we wonder who will be cast as Hrithik’s brothers. This will be Deepika’s next big project after Chhapaak where she is playing an acid attack survivor and 83 where she will romance her husband, Ranveer Singh. On the other hand, Hrithik is busy promoting his upcoming film — Super 30 — which is slated for release on July 11.
